Red Wines for under $15...that are actually worth drinking!

Kate
As requested from some of my fellow drinkers, I have compiled a list of wines that are affordable and actually good to drink, where possible I have listed where you can get them (if not the big stores) and the price you should be paying for them!

Goose island shiraz from Serafino in McLaren Vale... Spot on $15 and delish! The cab merlot was also fantastic, but we finished it before i figured I needed to take a photo... Oops!

The Maîtresse Pinot Noir - Aaron got me this little gem for my birthday this year, and as much as I am not a fan of Pinot... this is a pretty good one for about $15.20!

Gemtree Dragon's Blood Shiraz- I got a fantastic deal on this 2 for the price of 1... Its a ripper of a shiraz. Actually all of the Gemtree wines qre worth a try.

A GSM (Grenache Shiraz Mataro blend) is my favourite blend style, and from Australia the Barossa does it best.  Chateau Tanunda is one of the ones that comes in under $15 and is very drinkable.  If you like the style, I know so many more that are just a smidge out of this price range.

YOU MUST FIND AND TRY THIS WINE!!!  Since my trip to South America I have raved about Malbec, and I have only found one that matches the amazing-ness of the wines I drank over there... This Bleasdale Malbec is truly amazing, a little over $15, normally about $17, but you will not regret the extra $2... take my word for it and just find it!

Thorn and Clarke do some pretty decent wines and the "Sandpiper" range at $15 is the cheapest of the bunch.  In the Reds they do a Shiraz or a Cabernet Sauvignon and both of them, apart from the Shiraz being a touch unbalanced (bit too much acid) they are both nice wines.

WARNING!!!  This wine is truly excellent!  A Spanish blend of Shiraz and Tempranillo and should be $13...  The only problem with it is that I find it really hard to find, it's not in the big places, they do often have it at independent stores, like IGA, or Cellarbrations, depends on how clued in their wine buyers are.  The link to their website from here does have a list of stockists, and I truly hope that you can find this wine.

The next two wines are from St Hallett's winery in the Barossa... both are under $15 and very in the Barossa style... big, rich and best had with food.  The first is my favourite "Faith"  and I have faith that you to will enjoy it!

So I came across this wine back when I worked at a bottle shop in Geelong, and we used to sell heaps of it, the price has gone up a bit, but the quality has stayed the same.  It's a Cab Merlot and it's not for those that like light wines.
